The Draft - The Draft There is pending legislation in the House and Senate (twin bills: S 89 and HR 163) which will time the program's initiation so the draft can begin at early as Spring 2005 — just after the 2004 presidential election. The administration is quietly trying to get these bills passed now, while the public's attention is on the elections, so our action on this is needed immediately. $28 million has been added to the 2004 Selective Service System (SSS) budget to prepare for a military draft that could start as early as June 15, 2005....   [tags: essays research papers] 1680 words

Women and the Draft - Women and the Draft Men have always been looked upon as the leading sex. Looking back through history women have been the ones who take care of the home and children, while men are the ones who work and go to war. However in recent years there’s no doubt that women have become much more equal in the work force. Nevertheless men are still the ones who are forced to fight our wars when the time calls for it. Many think that women should be entirely equal to men having their choice to be drafted taken away but the fact is that they are physically at a disadvantage, too emotionally oriented, and the increase of female presence would have a more negative impact in the military in the way of social interactions....   [tags: Women's Rights] 813 words

Now, the U.S. military consists entirely of volunteer soldiers, and the draft has been discontinued, though while being discontinued, Government requests that all citizens sign for national service when they come of age to enlist.

Historical Analysis of the Military Draft Policy - Historical Analysis of the Military Draft Policy The Constitution adopted in 1789 gave Congress the "power to raise and support armies," but it neither mentioned nor prohibited conscription. The Framers left that issue to the future, although most of them believed that the United States like Britain would enlist its men rather than conscript them, and would pay for its armies through the power to tax. Not until World War I did the United States rely primarily upon conscription. The Selective Service Act of 1917 was adopted in large part because a civilian-led "preparedness" movement had persuaded many Americans that a selective national draft was the most equitable and efficient way for an industrial society to raise a wartime army....   [tags: Military Army Drafting History Essays]

Changes Made to the Draft of Strange Meeting - Changes Made to the Draft of Strange Meeting           Reality in warfare and the painful truths that accompany war are skillfully presented in Wilfred Owen's war poem "Strange Meeting."  Owen's poem is more powerful thanks to revisions the poet made as he struggled to understand the devastating effects of war, both emotionally and socially.  "Strange Meeting" underwent changes during its composition that signify changes in Owen's understanding of warfare and human interactions.  As he states in a draft of a preface to a book of poems, "My subject is War and the pity of War.  The Poetry is in the pity" (Ellmann and O'Clair 542).  Throughout the development of this poem, one can see Owen's concept of this pity change from a personal tragedy to a more universal waste.  Owen made several important changes to his poem "Strange Meeting" that enabled this universal pity to be more clearly presented.  He made the scene of the poem less dream-like and more like an actual encounter, he eliminated references to the identity of the enemy, and through this, the universality of his poem, the pity of war, is more plainly and powerfully conveyed....   [tags: Owen Strange Meeting Essays]

Never had I felt this kind of undiluted rage in dealing with a piece of writing. As far as I was concerned, the first draft was complete and therefore the entire piece was finished; however, my thesis advisor didn’t quite agree with me.

Should the United States have Mandatory Military Conscription? - The price of freedom should be borne by all, rich or poor. I learned this first hand as a United States Army Recruiter and a volunteer soldier who fought in two wars representing my country. As a military recruiter from 1971 to 1991, I was tasked with soliciting men and women who were high school graduates to enlist into the United States Army. Often times I would call a home to speak to a graduate about joining the army, and a mother would answer; I would tell her the purpose of my call, and often times her answer would be “not my son”....   [tags: Military]

Tim O'Brien's War Stories - Highly controversial, the Vietnam War incited widespread anti-war protests throughout the United States.

Although O’Brien had a bright future awaiting him at Harvard Graduate School, his political career was cut short upon receiving a draft notice just weeks after graduating....   [tags: Literacy Analysis ]

Effective Use of Revision in Strange Meeting - Effective Use of Revision in Strange Meeting             In writing his poem Strange Meeting, Wilfred Owen uses revision as a tool to both clarify his ideas and re-evaluate one of the central figures in the poem. By examining a reproduction of Owen’s original text and comparing it to the final, published copy, we are able to retrace his steps and, hopefully, gain a further understanding of his thought process and motivations concerning this particular poem. From these examinations, it is evident that Owen spent a large portion of the revision process attempting to alter the character of the “encumbered sleeper”, whom the narrator encounters in hell....   [tags: Owen Strange Meeting Essays]

He did things like institute an unfair draft, suspend Constitutional rights, allocate military spending without Congress, and institute emancipation. Although some may justify these actions, they stomped on the Constitution. Lincoln found powers in the constitutional clause making him "Commander in Chief of the Army and Navy of the United States, and of the militia of the several states."
